Some of my favorite movies are Christopher Guest’s mockumentaries and of those, I love love love Best in Show. So whenever I hear the word underwear I hear one of Cookie Fleck’s (Catherin O’Hara) old boyfriends singing “I’m not wearing under…wear.” Followed by “That is still the only time I ever did it on a rollercoaster.” That group of actors created some amazingly goofy but sweet characters. And at least Cookie’s sexploits will live on in infamy in my household, especially whenever we hear the word underwear. It is funny, both my husband and I, when thinking of a possible U post went straight to that line…so, I didn’t fight it.
If you haven’t seen these movies, Best in Show, Waiting for Guffman, This is Spinal Tap or A Mighty Wind, For Your Consideration (I haven’t seen as often, but still amazing, Catherine O’Hara at the end! how did they get her face to do that?!) I recommend them. You don’t learn anything or really go on any journey of self-discovery, but the characters are gold and the situations they find themselves in are hilarious. And watching poor Gerry Fleck (Eugene Levy) have to deal with his wife’s old boyfriends, the quantity and the pushiness of them, is too much fun to miss.
